Black Friday & More

Black Friday & More

Black Friday has come and gone.  Thanksgiving is rapidly becoming a distant memory.  The TSA horror stories are rolling in.  I spent the better half of a week unplugged.  How about you?  Did you get any good deals?  Did a TSA agent touch your junk?

We traveled to Bristol Tennessee to spend Thanksgiving with my wife’s side of the family.  It was just a six hour drive.  It gave me some time to read a book on Scrum (I really enjoyed that) and think about my goals for the next year and beyond.

What I really enjoyed was talking with my nephews.  The two topics we covered?

  • What do I REALLY do?  What IS project management and what is Agile?
  • The zombie apocalypse
  • If you want to take a hard honest look at yourself, talk with a 19-year-old who is actually listening and asking hard questions.  One of my nephews really made me think about things.  We also debated which would be better in a zombie apocalypse, unlimited plywood and nails or unlimited ammunition.

    I’m going to have to save these topics for later posts.  But, a man half your age certainly has a different perspective on the world and it’s worth listening to.

    1. Sounds like you had a great Thanksgiving! I spent the holiday at my inlaws’ house, and since they live in a connectivity black hole in the mountains of northeast PA, being unplugged was not a choice. I didn’t go shopping, so no good deals, and since we drove up and back, no junk-touching by TSA agents!

      I will be visiting my cousins this weekend, and three of them are 20, 18, and 15 years old. Their perspective certainly is interesting to see!
